Why does it take almost 6 weeks to release an e-fit?
surely if it was done the next day, there would be alot more chance of a witness coming forward and less chance of someone else falling victim to the attacker.

Exactly what i thought, i cant believe theyve only just released this. We have a right to know if something like this has happened and where as soon as possible so we can be a little more cautious and warn our kids to be a little bit more careful and aware so this doesnt happen to them or anyone else. How can they expect people to remember this person from over 2 months ago?? My thoughts are with the poor girl that this happened to and hope the dirty little scum bag is caught soon!
